" Creative " writing class

It was dark in the room where they were all sitting. The room was lit only by the warm glow of their pipes. "Whadday'all say we sing a song together?" someone said in the dark. He disguised his voice so none of the others knew who it was. "Whadday'all say we do something?" Muriel Hauptmann said. She...

It's a good thing you and I aren't roommates. We'd be swimming in ashes! I only empty my ashtrays when I really, really, really have to sweep because I'm tracking ashy footprints everywhere.

What Are You Smoking September 2019

This tin of London Mixture will never die! I don't open up the accordion paper to pinch out some tobacco, I do it blind. I estimate what's left by tin weight and by touch. I just took a peak. Crimminy! I'm gonna be smoking this tin for a couple more days. It isn't bad, I'm just getting tired of it. ...

The History of This Pipe, Vol I

Whalehead King suggested it but I haven’t seen the thread so I thought I’d kick it off. This is one of my favorite pipes. When I refer to the “Busted Barling” this is it. It’s vintage. I looked the date up by the logo etc but can’t remember how old she is. I like Lumberman shape and when it was off...

What Hand Made Cigar Are You Smoking Today? WHMCAYST™

An oversized Flor de Oliva tonight. I have a ring gauge on my desk and I just tried to measure this monster. It is thicker than any imaginable human finger outside a Jack Kirby drawing. I have a ruler on my desk. This cigar is 10 inches long. The whole thing is ridiculous but it will last me the res...

Bent vs. Straight

https://i.imgur.com/yylqAT1.jpg I like both. But in a clenching situation, it has to be bent. seems to be the casee for me, also...the only pipe I can passably clench is the bent, plastic stem Fifth Ave. The straight, acrylic stem Sav's...forget it. I find this to be the same for me, as the MM plas...

Bent vs. Straight

I'm straight through and through. Any more than a quarter bent is too much for me and even that is too much for me. Aesthetically, a straight pipe can be tilted upward or downward in a clench to reflect my mood---whether I am feeling jaunty or deep in thought. A bent pipe doesn't have the same range...
